The White House repeated that President Joe Biden did plan on running for reelection in 2024, despite growing questions about his age and economic record.
White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre fired off a message on social media about the president’s political plans for the future.
“To be clear, as the President has said repeatedly, he plans to run in 2024,” she wrote on Monday evening.
Earlier Monday, Jean-Pierre tried to ward off questions about the president’s future political plans by alluding to the Hatch act.
“I cannot talk about elections, I cannot be a political analyst from here, or the midterms or anything like that including 2024,” she said during the White House press briefing when asked by a reporter about Biden’s political future.
